The Star Catcher by Stephanie Keyes

What They Say:

Magick and destiny intertwine as he fights to save his kingdom and the goddess he loves.

Her kiss…the feel of her skin…the beat of her heart…For seventeen-year-old Kellen St. James, each memory is marred by a single sentence on a lone strip of paper.

Cali has been taken…

Armed with an amulet that channels the ultimate power of Faerie, Kellen searches for his love. However, control of the amulet’s energy comes with a price, and Kellen soon learns that Cali’s captor has plans for the stone. With the threat of the Star Catcher’s evil looming above Kellen and his kingdom, he’ll have to free the Heart of Faerie and break the curse the binds the Children of Danu to the darkness. But before that, he has to find his real father, the king. No pressure, right?

Kellen and Cali will battle bewitched armies and unknown foes as they fight to stay together. Will Kellen embrace his immortal destiny? Or will his world, and the man he is fated to become, be destroyed by The Star Catcher?

What I Say

I would like thank LAHE for sending me a copy of this in exchange for a fair and honest review (at least I think it was LAHE who sent this to me).

I love all the covers in this series, this one is just as gorgeous. 

Having read the 1st two books I couldn't wait to read this one too.

I love this series of books and I'm sad that it has ended or has it?

In this book we see the story from Kellens, Cali's and Gabe's point of view and this added another brilliant aspect to the story, I think Gabe is brilliant.

There's so much happens in this book but it is all told brilliantly and ties in with being told from the different POV's.

We also have new characters, some evil and some good, I love Gabe's new love interest Singer.

Stephanie had me guessing how things would turn out and would Kellen finally find his really father and complete his destiny, I really wasn't disappointed with the ending as I have been with so many other books.

5 out of 5 stars

About The Author

Stephanie Keyes grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and spent years traveling and working as a Corporate Trainer before she made the decision to pen her first novel. 

As a teen, her family always accused her of having an “overactive imagination.” Now, she’s encouraged to keep her head in the clouds and share her world with readers. 
Still a resident of the ‘Burgh, Steph is now Mom to two little boys who constantly keep her on her toes. In addition, she's best friend to her incredible rockstar of a husband. She is an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), as well as a featured author for Love a Happy Ending Lifestyle e-magazine.

Keyes is the author of the YA Fantasy series, The Star Child, which currently includes The Star Child, After Faerie, The Fallen Stars, and The Star Catcher, all from by Inkspell Publishing. The Fallen Stars was a 2013 semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Awards. The Star Child has topped the Amazon best-seller list several times since its 2012 release. Steph writes YA novels because she’s a hopeless romantic who lives to believe that Magick truly does exist. She is hard at work on a new YA novel.
